This dress belongs to my aunt who married in 1981. Her sister made this dress for her out of Satin with satin brocade scalloped hem. It resembles the dress that Princess Kate wore. It has an over bodice long sleeve lace piece.
That has pearl snaps up the back. The ends of the sleeves come down over the hand and also have pearl snaps. The veil sits on the crown of your head and is made of tulle and lace. The entire dress with the veil weighs between 3-4 pounds. All pieces are in very good vintage condition.
It does have some flaws & stains. I have not attempted to get the stains out. I had so many pictures that I had to combine them in order to get them all listed here. Please see the pictures of my aunt wearing the dress on her wedding day. Below are the measurements and more of a description.
